Start the Day Right

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! Psalm 150:6 

Those who preach must preach God’s messages; those who serve must serve with the strength that God gives them, so that in all things praise may be given to God through Jesus Christ, to whom belong glory and power forever and ever. Amen. (1 Peter 4:11)

God is wise and powerful! Praise him forever and ever. (Daniel 2:20)

 

One of my Goals for this year has been to be better about doing devotions or being in Gods word everyday, so far I have not been doing too good with this 🙁

When I think of devotions, The first image that pops in my head, is a quiet, dimly lit bedroom, sitting on my bed, being nice and relaxed and being deep in Gods word …. awww being a mom this NEVER happens! So I’ve changed my expectations and have come to the conclusion “it doesn’t matter”! I truly believe that God doesn’t care where or when you are spending time with Him, it’s just that you ARE spending time with Him! Whether it’s praise, prayer or study, just do it!

How am I implementing this in my life you ask:

  • right now with training at work, I have an extra long drive to work and I spend that time in prayer for my family and for their day(and mine) ahead of them.

  • Devotions at work – my mother gave me this devotional (shown below) about 5 years ago, for Working Women and it is really good! It is to the point, short and has a nice little prayer at the end – thanks mom 🙂

  • but that’s all I am really doing right now…my hope is to do more “studying” of the Bible and I have this “Hope” devotional but I have not been able to start that yet…too close to the heart right now with my dad’s passing.
